‘Pilgrim’ to share experience

The Human Experience Series is a pilot project at the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre.
The goal of the project is to have diverse presentations open to the public with no charge, offering an opportunity for learning, discovery, and discussion.

For the first in this series, we are fortunate to present “The Way I Walked” with Anne Zucchiatti, who will share her experiences and photos from her travels on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain.
The Camino de Santiago actually is several hiking routes that all lead to the town of Santiago de Compostela.
Today pilgrims walk the Camino for many reasons, not only religious, and the meaning of “pilgrim” has changed over time.
What attracts people to the Camino de Santiago today is the mix of adventure, seeing Spain and its culture, and the camaraderie that builds up over several weeks of walking with other pilgrims.
People who walk come from all over the world and that creates a diverse environment.
Part I of the Human Experience will be held Monday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre.
Zucchiatti will be treating us to a special Santiago cake.
